Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Hey Trailboss, I know the next ride is James River. I looked at the route and it looks like the group will be crossing the mother of all crossing. There may need to be some discussion on this. It's either deep or slick depending on your line. What do you think?

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

I'll be doing the go around. It wouldn't be so bad with the smaller non electrical bikes, but I don't thing the Africa Twin would fair well in the dunking booth! lol

It's not as big of a deal as its made out to be. I would do it on the at. Seen plenty of big bikes go through before.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

A bunch of us did it in the spring. The shallow was super slick, but going a little deeper was fine. The only one who fell went shallow.

I highly recommend walking the whole thing before you ride it, so you know where to go.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

The deep section looks like the way to go but it has caveats also. Every time I have been there the deep section was...deep. Risk falling in the shallow slick stuff or potentially fill up boots in the deep.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

I'm going to pack my shop broom and sweep the shallow first. I may look funny with a broom sticking out the end of the bike, but oh well!

Just kidding

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

So, I'm planning on riding the DRZ this weekend. Is fuel going to be an issue? Should I plan on "accessorizing" with an extra gas can?

The route is a total of 233 miles (according to the GPS). Gas along the route is available in Johnson City, Mason, and Round Mountain.

If you have a gps, download the route and select a spot on the route to intersect the group.

If you don't have a gps, I suggest being at the intersection of Hwy 281 and Hwy 1323 at 9:00 am.
